What is the 5 Days of Christmas? Well, it's a lot like it sounds. It is a five day spectacle filled with fun holiday themed events all to benefit HopeSource, a Kittitas County non-profit that protects those who cannot protect themselves and empowers those who can.
The dream started with Ron Stiffler, General Manager of Canyon River Ranch. He wanted to create a must see, must attend event to celebrate the Christmas season, a type of event that is not currently available in our area. Not only that, he wanted it to have a purpose that went beyond the commercialization of the holiday season. That’s when he approached Susan Grindle, CEO of HopeSource, to see if she would be interested in teaming up on this event to support the good work of HopeSource, to which of course she gave an emphatic yes!
As we get each day’s activities firmed up, I’ll be posting more information so you can know what to expect. If you’re the planner type like me, you’ll appreciate the day by day breakdown so that you can be sure to get in on the parts of the event that are most exciting to you. However, as the details are still getting developed I’ll just give you a teaser of what you can expect to look forward to:
Black Tie Gala, Designer Holliday Trees and Wreaths, One of a Kind Trunk Show and Holiday Store, Jr. Elf Celebration full of family fun, Holiday Baking Demonstrations and a Community Reception and Open House.
Plus, it’ll all be held at Canyon River Ranch so you know it will be beautiful!
